The Handler of The Umbrella Academy, played by Kate Walsh, was introduced as Five’s (Aidan Gallagher) former boss and mentor in the first season of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy. She was incredibly important to Five’s development, shaping him into the killer he becomes. In the second season, she returns as an antagonist, a member of the new Organization, and an antagonist to the entire team once again. What happened between these two seasons that would cause this reversal? Let’s take a look at The Handler in The Umbrella Academy! The Handler: Kate Walsh as The Handler in The Umbrella Academy

Who Is The Handler
You can read about Kate Walsh on Wikipedia, or you can watch her portray The Handler in season 1 and 2 of The Umbrella Academy. For those who are unaware, the series is based on a comic book written by Gerard Way, front man for alternative rock band My Chemical Romance. The story follows a group of adopted siblings (or more accurately half-siblings) with special powers who are brought together to investigate their father’s death and must work together to save us all from impending doom. This premise seems ridiculous, but at its core it’s an ensemble drama—so expect some fun character development.
How Does She Feel About Her Daughter
While we don’t know much about her family life, what we do know is that she wanted a child badly enough to steal one. We can only imagine how hurt Lila must have been when her adoptive mother—the woman who killed her biological parents and claimed her for herself—abandoned her right before Five went missing.
In season 2, there was no love lost between them, and even though they worked together to find Five after he went missing again, it doesn’t seem like she was ever anything but cruel to Lila. The Handler has never shown any signs of remorse for anything she did to get where she is now, so it doesn’t seem likely that she would be tender with Lila.
What Is Her Relationship With Five
In Season 2, Five tells Hazel and Cha-Cha that she used to work for The Handler. She also says that they were friends, but admits it may not have been a friendly friendship. However, her true feelings toward her former boss were more complicated than they let on. When Lila (Emmy Raver-Lampman) shows up at Blackwood’s dinner party unannounced with a new fiancé, Five and Hazel are noticeably less than thrilled to see their former handler again.
Where Will We See Her Next
